Bowl of Strawberries

After the dark background in "Tulips & Pewter", I decided to go the opposite direction and paint a high key composition. All the dark values are in the strawberries. I enjoy finding the warm and cool colors in white folds. I like the warm shadow under the fold in the lower right corner. It feels like warm light is traveling through the cloth. This painting is part of the "Small Art with A Big Heart" exhibit at Firefly Trading Company in Cable, May 3 — June 30, 2012.
